During ESNS24 we have invited all delegates to join the dialogue on music that concerns every industry professional: How can the European music sector deal with the impacts of climate change and help tackle climate change-related challenges? In the panel Dialogue on music #3: addressing the challenges of climate change: the survival of the music ecosystem, we started off with an experts' “weather forecast” to see what we can expect for the music ecosystem.

In the different research findings, funded by the European Commission, we’ve signal different experiences with obstacles to work on environmental sustainability and why the geographic differences exist in the music sector in Europe, therefore we had a conversation about the following questions:

- How do we create equal possibilities to work on environmental sustainability in the music sector in all regions of Europe?

- Regarding knowledge sharing, how do we provide better access to the information that is available on environmental sustainability in the music sector?

- How do we move from knowledge to action and overcome obstacles to work on environmental sustainability in the music sector?

We want to continue this conversation after the ESNS. You can contact us by sending an email to sustainabilitydesk@esns.nl or to fill in this form.

All responses that enter up until the 31st of January will be taken into our rapport that will be presented to the European Commission.

Music Dialogues is part of a series of 10 dialogue sessions under the Music Moves Europe initiative (MME) steered by the European Commission and happening at music conferences all over Europe. The dialogue programme is carried out by ESNS, East European Music Conference, Linecheck, MaMA, Reeperbahn Festival and Tallinn Music Week.
